to mark the 50th apversary of the civil rights march on washington led by dr. martin luther king junior. president barack obama will speak on the actual anniversary that is wednesday. while we remember how far the nation has come, we are reminded how far we still have to go even if we are in a progressive city like san francisco. kpix5 on the numbers that show inquality still exists. -- inequality still exists. >> reporter: san francisco has knocked but one trend. 60% of san francisco residents are african-american but they account for more than half of the inmates in jail. >> there is no way you can statistically justify that calculation. >> reporter: former schwarzenegger administration spoke on kpix5 sunday morning. >> i think we have to dig deeper to find answers for why we have this type of disparity in a city that is supposed to be so focused on creating equality. >> it is the struggle that continues across the nation. powell on "face the nation" on what martin luther king junior would say today. >> congratulations on all of the progress that has been made, let's keep going. the
on washington for jobs and freedom. jobs was the number one thing on that list. and the president today is expected to talk about that, that a great deal of progress has been made in terms of the rights of all americans and the legal rights of all americans. but that in terms of the economy and jobs, not enough progress has been made. it's an interesting point that about three times more african-americans live below the poverty level than white americans. and that was the same proportion in 1963. fewer americans live in poverty overall but by comparison, african-americans and white americans, the proportions have not changed since 1963. and i believe that's what you are going to hear the president speaking about just now. >> ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states, barack obama. (cheers and applause) >> to the king family who have sacrificed and inspired so much, to president clinton, president carter, vice president biden, jill, fellow americans, five decades ago today americans came to this honored place to lay claim to a promise made at our founding. we hold these tr

more tonight about the source of that threat. homeland security correspondent bob orr is in washington. bob? >> reporter: maurice, that threat surfaced in the past week when intelligence analysts intercepted electronic communications between top al qaeda leaders discussing a plot against an unspecified target. sources say the head of al qaeda ayman al-zawahiri, was pressing the leader of al qaeda in the arabian peninsula to step up american targets. they referenced something big, noting an attack could happen as early as yesterday. nasir al-wuhayshi, once the personal secretary to osama bin laden, runs the yemen based branch of al qaeda that has proven to be the most aggressive in plotting against the u.s. bound airplanes with bombs hidden inside underwear and computer printers. al qaeda in the arabian peninsula has been battered by drone strikes. deputy commander saed al-shihri was killed earlier this year. but counterterrorism officials warn al qaeda in the arabian peninsula remains dangerous and capable of inflicting serious damage. while u.s. officials were stunned that veteran al
30. bob orr is in washington, he's our homeland security correspondent and, bob, what's behind this uptick in these drone strikes just today? >> reporter: well, norah, i think we can say the surge we're seeing in drone strikes is clearly aimed at trying to disrupt any potential attack plans about dplaep yemen. the u.s. here is sending a pretty clear psychological message that the drones are on constant patrol, scouting for targets. it's interesting to note there have only been 12 drone strikes in yemen all year up until july 27, but that was about the time that u.s. intelligence overheard al qaeda leaders plotting imminent attacks and then everything changed. we've now seen five drone strikes in just the last three days. by the way, it's also interesting, all the militants who have been killed have been hit while riding in small groups inside vehicles. >> o'donnell: so what do we know about who is being targeted by the drone strikes? >> sources tell us most of those who who have been killed so far were terrorist foot soldiers, four were described as mid-level group leaders. but
